This paper focuses on ideas and examples of wastewater facilities developing sustainable energy programs through conservation, efficient systems, and development of renewable energy. The emphasis of the paper will be on the development of renewable energy from biogas and biosolids to energy. Although viable renewable energy alternatives are available, there does not appear to be one renewable energy source that is a panacea for the global energy demand. Instead, it is generally accepted that a global sustainable energy system will be a combination of many different renewable resources. Ultimately, sustainable energy systems would be achieved by (1) energy conservation, (2) creating more efficient systems, and (3) renewable energy provided by a combination of sources, such as solar power, wind power, hydropower, geothermal power, and bioenergy. Hence, a movement toward maximizing utilization of biologically derived energy coupled with other renewable energy sources has recently become of more interest to wastewater facility management as part of the global renewable energy portfolio.
